This is a misleading point though. You're claiming that Severson is a prime talent while Mallet is a grinder. Mallet outperformed a whole bunch of highly regarded prospects from the 2010 1st round last season. Severson looks good right now, how does that translate to the AHL and the NHL? Same applies to Mallet.

Transition from junior to pro is never a sure thing. Some guys have the size, the skating, and everything else and yet they just never make it because they miss the one thing that nobody noticed.

We're about 6 or 7 months removed from that draft, making any sort of judgements about any of these prospects is completely ridiculous.
